I'm looking for some seating for my theater room and would like a couple of rows of seats, but my ceiling is too low in the basement for a riser. I found these seats

http://www.****************/seatcraft-rialto-front-row-home-theater-seating/12/236

They seem perfect for me. I just don't know anything really about seating. Are these good seats? They seemed to have gotten good customer reviews on the website. What do you think would be a good price to pay for these seats? Would I be able to get anything off these seats or is the price as is with home theater seating?

Just FYI I would take those reviews with a grain of sale. The company picks/chooses which ones go up there, and additionally I was reading reviews for the seats I have on the way (Berkline 12000 Frampton) and more than 1/2 of them talk about another chair in the actual testimonial.

Before I purchased mine I was looking into some Seatcraft stuff too but no one really had much info about them anywhere, on this site or just searching on google.

i bought the standard rialto seats and the back row rialto seats which is 8 inches taller. I too didnt have a high cieling and couldnt use a riser. These backrow seats are great. the ONLY gripe i have about htem is that it feels a tiny bit awkward getting off and on them cuz they are 8 inches taller. Especially for shorter people. they may need to do a little hop.

to fix this problem i built a platform with 2 x4's Now then seem MUCH more comfortable to get in and out from smile.gif

Hey. I'm looking at the Rialto and am hoping you can answer some questions: Where are they made? How comfortable are they? Is the leather pretty sturdy? Can you tell me where you purchased them from? I'm looking at **************** but some of the buyers had bad experiences. Anything you can add that would help would be much appreciated.. I can't find any to try locally and I'm nervous buying them sight unseen. Thanks.

Are the seats comfortable? I'm a big guy and I hate to buy a seat sight unseen. Thx.

so, you're ceiling was too low to put the seats on a riser, but not too low to use seats that are 8inches too tall, and build a step(riser) in front of them to help you get up? just seems like you could have put the same 'short' seats on a 8" riser and been done with it

not sure I follow that logic. but at least the result looks good, haha

Hi,

My apologies for reactivating an old thread. But I cam across the Rialto. It might be a good fit for my setup. I am looking at the standard height.
How is the quality of the chair?

Thought I would add that I contacted them to ask about the front row seats to see if they reclined. According to their sales rep, only the middle and back versions actually recline. The front row DO NOT recline. So plan and buy carefully.
